Aerodom asks passengers to arrive at airports 3 hours in advance

Source: External

Aeropuertos Dominicanos Siglo XXI (Aerodom) recommends that users who intend to travel to the Dominican Republic during December arrive at the airport terminals at least 3 hours in advance, due to unprecedented traffic in Dominican aviation history. Aerodom’s Director of Corporate Communication, Luis José López, provided the information while pointing out that the company established new facilities for people traveling through the Las Américas International Airport (AILA) and other terminals on Christmas Eve in April of this year.

In an interview with CDN in Despierta, the business executive stated that they have seen an extraordinary recovery in the number of travelers, exceeding the number of people who entered the country in 2019, “which had been the record year for the company” throughout its history.

López stated that he expects over 600,000 passengers to pass through the Las Américas International Airport in December, which is why they have already reinforced all processes with the assistance of the government entities that operate at the airport.

Now,it would not occur to this company that they could increase their staff and facilities so as to cater for the increased number of passengers. Las Americas is much better than Punta Cana which,along with MIA and LAX is an airport to avoid , but seldom are all the scanners working together and seldom are the immigration booths fully utilised.

The timely processing of passengers weak spots are check in and security screening. These two activites always seem to be the bottleneck of passenger movement into terminal boarding areas. There has to be an ample amount of staff in both zones to process passengers efficiently and accurately.

The amount of flights and passenger bookings for each day/week should be enough for airport employers to adjust staff size to meet the demands to process passengers quickly, to avoid the creation and dread of long lines.

The one most often bottleneck everybody dislikes is the screening checkpoint of tubs, shoe/belt removal, x-ray machines, body scanners, and so on. There needs to be sufficient equipment, sufficient security staff, and ample space to comfortably carry out the screenings.

I was going to say that. If you expect more travelers then hire more people to work.
